HorizonRC.com’s review of the ParkZone Micro Cessna

September 14, 2010

Radio control airplanes have seen a number of significant changes during the last few years. For the most part it seems airplanes have been getting bigger, even huge. And “big” usually means expensive. But ParkZone has an introduction that goes the other way. The Cessna Centurion is about as small as an RC airplane can get. But it flies way better than any micro model you have seen. In fact, you have to fly it to believe it. Jim Booker provides his take on this wonderful plane.

    @fatymicfaty Actually these have been discontinued. They were decent for leaning to fly. The ParkZone J-3 Cub would be similar to these.

    I use the same battery for my mcx and that works fine. I have had the replace the motor once or twice, but since the motor occasionally spins, I know its plugged in. I don know what to do! plz help!

    Sounds like the battery doesn’t have enough voltage. Check the AA’s in your charger. Also if you left the battery plugged into the ESC while storing it then it probably is ruined and needs to be replaced.

    I have a citabria and theres a problem.
    I had put it down for a while (month or so) then went to pick it back up. when i plugged the battery in, the servos worked, but the motor only sputtered then killed. i turned the plane off and on again and the same thing happened. can someone help? thanks

    I started flying when I was your age. I saved up for 3 years for my first RC airplane and that’s when I joined the club. Flew gas planes for 4 years and then switched to electric. They’re pretty cheap… for the price of three new video games you can get a ParkZone Citabria or Cessna! Buy it off eBay and it can be delivered right to your door.

    Probably because of airhogs/silverlit toy rc cars/planes are drawing them away from hobby shops, or they are playing video games. I think these look pretty cool but I’m 13 and I cant just go out to a hobby shop which is 40 minutes away and pick one of these up, I have to work for them.

    Great video, Production note though, guy with hand held mic needs to stick it out so it can pick people up. Like Bob Barker, put that mic right in their faces.

    I used to be a member of a model airplane club, and I was the only guy under 60 in the club! Look at the guys doing the review… all old folks home age except the guy in his 40’s. Why can’t they try to get more kids/teens/young adults out?
